Dairy Industry in India:
Dairy products in India are always in demand since milk forms ~90% of household dairy consumption (10% CAGR in last 10 years).
Most of the Dairy industry is being served by unorganized sector.
In recent times we have seen that organised players like Parag Milk Foods have done well in taking dairy industry to a new level.
The two challenges that an organised player faces is to procure milk in high quantity directly from farmers and to distribute them to customers by creating direct, indirect and value added products. Some examples of value added products are like cheese, flavored milk etc.
